Chastity Bono was a lesbian. Now he's Chaz. Does that mean he's straight?

Not necessarily. Has he said anything about his preference post-transition?

Chaz Bono likes women, so yes, I'd say he's a straight transguy. On the opposite end of things, here in San Francisco (I can imagine people already rolling their eyes), it isn't uncommon to find transgender individuals who are gay, as in female-to-male transmen who are attracted to men and male-to-female transwomen who are attracted to women. Back in the day I thought it was all rather redundant, until I realized that sexual orientation and gender identity really are separate things.
